Rhino 700 Possible Problems

Been doing some searching and found a little stuff about the Rhino 700's, but I was wondering what are some common problems (big or small) with the 700's that should be addressed or stayed on top of with maintenance to prevent anything bad happening. Let me know if ya'll have any good information that ya'll can share with a new 700 owner.

I have a 450 Rhino, but the whole motor ordeal is different, although I believe everything else is pretty much the same.

Thanks Justin

I own an 08 700, and honestly i can't think of one problem with them. So I'm also curious as to what to watch out for.

If it's an 08 the only thing I can think of at the moment is the sliders in the sheave melting away

Yes sir, it is an 08 and what do you mean by the sliders melting away and what would be a good remedy for this? Does it really get that hot in there, or have that much tension againts them?

Thanks Justin

Really hot, and if you run a CVT filter throw it in the trash. The sliders are on the cam plate inside the sheave. Mine melted around 2-300 miles. Call UTV CRAP or one of the vendors and they will hook you up with the fix. While your there put a machined sheave in for alittle more topend speed

So the sliders are melting down? I have 700 miles on mine, and i'm not seeing problems yet, but thanks for the heads up, I'll have to watch for it now.

For some reason some melt and some don't. When mine melted I had no symptoms at all. The cam plate was just rubbing metal to metal with the sheave

Without a doubt my CVT filter I used to run was why mine melted. My exhaust tube and rubber boot caught fire because of the heat.

Well where is UTV Craps peeps when I need their advice on this problem? LOL. Do the stock 700's run this CVT tube or whatever it is ya'll are talking about? I have around 1600 miles on mine, and it runs good so far, but I would like to at least fix a common problem.

How hard/long does it generally take to change out the sliders and say a clutch sheave?

Thanks for all the input guys. It is really helpful.

Thanks Justin

If you are some what mechanically inclined maybe 1 - 2 Hours to change your sheave.

X2 depends on how much beer you drink. I would service the sheave before you buy any parts. If it all looks good put it back together and roll
